    Hi, after a clean install i noticed weird names / groups on my slave drive security permissions after clean install.

    There is three of them, with slightly different permissions and cant find any info on it anywhere.

    They are:

    S-1-5-21-1844237615-20000478354-682003330-1003
    S-1-5-21-1844237615-20000478354-682003330-1004
    S-1-5-21-1844237615-20000478354-682003330-1005

    My admin, system and powerusers groups are there like before...but i dont know about these and if i can delete them. :confused:

    I think its just the old grouping from the previous install and the unreckonized security descripters the way the new installs sees and sets the security permissions for this drive...there is three of them. :rolleyes:

    what are they?
    can they be deleted w/o harm?

    Also, while im on permissions. On the master drive and partition that the OS installs on, is the "creator owner" and the "everyone" group needed???


    Im pretty sure the "system" group should always stay.:p

    Thanks for reading
